- And there’s even more!
Booking your cruise with Princess MedallionClass –
Your cruise has been booked aboard a Princess MedallionClass ship. How exciting!!
As of this date, there are three ships in the Princess fleet that are MedallionClass ready and sail to various destinations all over the world. They are the Caribbean Princess, Regal Princess and Royal Princess with more coming very soon.
You can begin your process of getting OceanReady at home.
If you live in the United States, have the OceanMedallion shipped directly to your home. Make sure that you fill in your shipping information at least 12 days ahead of your departure date. This way it will arrive in plenty of time.
For people living outside of the U.S., you are still able to get OceanReady by downloading the apps to your phone and you’ll be able to pick up your Medallion when you get to port.
When your OceanMedallion arrives at your home, it will come with instructions as well as a complimentary lanyard.
You can choose to keep the Medallion in the lanyard or once on board purchase an accessory for it such as a wristband, pendant, clip or bracelet for an additional fee.
The Medallion is waterproof as well as sand and salt resistant, so you don’t have to worry about going to the pool or beach with it.
You don’t need to charge it either as it’s always on.
Embarking and Disembarking on a Princess MedallionClass ship –
When you are wearing your Medallion, it is such a breeze to both embark and disembark the ship.
We arrived at the port the day of our departure and I seriously couldn’t believe how easy and fast we were able to board.
It was amazing and it’s all because your cruise information is stored in that quarter-sized little gem.
Also, all of your credit card, driver’s license and passport information is in it as well so you don’t need to carry those around with you on the ship. Although if making purchases during excursions, you will want to bring a credit card and your license.
And get this, when you walk up to your cabin door, it automatically unlocks for you! Then you can press down on the handle to enter hands-free! Makes it so easy when you’re tired and your arms are full after a day off the ship!
No more worrying about losing your key card or having that magnetic strip deactivate if you’ve been holding it near your phone.
OceanMedallion Apps –
There are six apps available for both Android and iOS users that work right along with your Medallion.
Even though you won’t be able to use them before your trip, you’ll want to make sure your OceanReady by downloading them beforehand. It will just make things that much easier.
I put them all in one folder as well as the Mobile Passport app so I wouldn’t have to search for them throughout the trip. The Mobile Passport app allows you to fill out customs forms before arriving at customs making it much easier to pass through.
These apps are pretty incredible and you can do so much with them. I’ll go into more detail about each of them in an upcoming post.
Cruise with Princess MedallionClass and have the very best Wi-Fi at sea in MedallionNet –
Today, having fast, reliable Wi-Fi is everything.
Having it just as fast out in the middle of an ocean as it is right in your living room is even more than everything!
On previous cruises with Princess, I’m not going to lie, sometimes the internet connection was frustrating. It was slow, and when doing my live videos or FaceTiming family was fuzzy.
Not. Any. More!!
With MedallionNet, access to the internet is instantly at your fingertips.
Streaming your favorite movies, tv shows, or videos is seamless as is talking to the family who misses you so very much when you’re away.
Yes, I am on of “those people” who had to FaceTime our pup, Logan the Golden Dog, while I was on the cruise.
He missed me, what can I say. ?
Not only did I FaceTime the dog, but I was also able to wish my daughter, Alex who’s living in Berlin, Germany, a happy birthday.
Ironically enough, her sister, Emma (who I brought with me on) and I went zip lining on her birthday just as she and I had done two years before on our Panama Canal cruise.
See how clear that picture is? We were in the middle of the Caribbean Sea and she was thousands of miles away in Berlin, Germany.
Princess MedallionClass puts food, drinks and shopping right at your fingertips –
With your OceanMedallion and the Medallion apps on your phone, you can order food and drink and have it delivered to you anywhere on the ship.
Relaxing at the pool and don’t want to go stand in line for something to eat or drink? No problem!
When you order it through the OceanNow app and are wearing your Medallion, crew members will know your exact location, charge it to your room and deliver it right to your chaise lounge.
Also, if you want to take some souvenirs home from your trip or if you’ve forgotten to pack something, ordering items through the app is the way to go. You can have them delivered right to you in your cabin.
I’m not gonna lie, we were spoiled wearing our OceanMedallions.
I know it’s hard to believe when cruising is so relaxing, but this MedallionClass cruise was the easiest and most relaxing way to go.
I’m not sure if I could go on another cruise without it now.
